Rio Brazos Distillery

The first licensed distillery in the Brazos Valley of Texas. The Rio Brazos Distillery makes whiskey from small batches of sweet, yellow corn and roasted barley malts that are cooked in a kettle and distilled in a 500-gallon reflux pot still.

A uniquely American style known as a Tennessee narrow hearts cut, our double-distillation process involves four all-day cooks, four all-day stripping runs and a final, 13-hour long spirit run. The grain solids left over from the distillation of American-grown corn and barley is donated to a local company that grows insects for poultry farming.

We age Texas Bourbon first in small, new White oak barrels, finish it in deeply charred, refilled barrels and then fill and wax each bottle by hand here in College Station.
